We've been reviewing professional DJ headphones on this site and youtube channel for years now and its finally time that we rank our top 5 DJ headphones heading into the new year. Check out our video inside to see which headphones made the cut.
The new V-MODA Crossfade Wireless is the company's first cordless headphones that sport the same over-the-ear 50mm drivers and overall construction as my favorite DJ headphones, the M-100's. The Crossfade Wireless headphones are rechargeable via USB, can use the same accessories and shields as the M-100's, and they even have almost the same sound signature when running in wireless mode and cable mode. Check out our unboxing & first impressions video to see all that comes in the package.
VModa make great headphones. Always wanted to own one. Their headphones have won great awards, they are worn by some of the best DJs in the business. So it is not a big surprise with Roland establishing a partnership with them. This is what the SEO had to say: After testing countless headphones for the ultimate pair that accurately represented the music we created, we found V-MODA’s Crossfade M-100."
Just last week, V-MODA announced their newest headphones called the Crossfade Wireless. The new V-MODA Crossfade Wireless is the company's first cordless headphones that sport the same over-the-ear 50mm drivers and overall construction as my favorite DJ headphones, the Crossfade M-100's. The Crossfade Wireless headphones are rechargeable via USB, can use the same accessories and shields as the M-100's, and they even have almost the same exact sound signature when running in wireless mode and cable mode.
If you've been following this DJ blog for a while, then you would already know that my absolute favorite DJ headphones are the V-MODA M-100. These headphones have great looks, impressive sound, excellent fit, and durability. You also have the option to remove the shields on the outside of the earcups and design them via graphics and colors exactly as you wish. V-MODA now takes this design concept a serious step forward by allowing these shields to be 3D printed with even more design options and on a huge selection of materials from steel to platinum.
For this week's video entry, we are proud to present another FREE Giveaway of the recently reviewed V-MODA XS Professional on-the-ear Headphones. The V-MODA XS headphones have a really lightweight, low profile, and sleek deisgn with quality durable metal frame and CLIQFOLD Hinge design. The V-MODA XS headphones also have great sound quality, a hardcase for protection, and dual-inputs to daisy-chain with other headphones.
V-MODA's newest set of professional/consumer headphones has now arrived at the DJbooth.net lab for the full out video & written review treatment. The new V-MODA XS on-ear headphones sport a very sleek and slender design which also folds into a very compact package for easy transport and storage thanks to the all-metal Cliqfold hinges also found on the popular V-MODA M-100's.
Earlier this week I decided to hit up the trusty Stanton ST-150 turntables and Traktor Z2 Mixer for yet another quick freestyle session featuring songs from my newest mixtape release; Blazing Cuts December 2013.

Every month I'll try to complete a quick freestyle DJ session while choosing songs from my newest Monthly Mixtape series called "DJ Blaze - Blazing Cuts". Check out my quick freestyle video session and download my latest December 2013 mixtape.

My favorite DJ headphones of all time just keep getting better and better. V-Moda has unveiled the new BoomPro Hi-Fi detachable professional microphone, the new CoilPro Performance DJ cable that extends the reach of the headphones up to 12 feet, and new XL Memory Cushion earpads for even more comfort and better sound isolation. These accessories are now available at V-Moda or at Amazon and they make perfect companions for the V-Moda M-100 headphones that we recently reviewed or for many other compatible DJ headphones. We have all three accessories in the Lab and we have a cool new product feature video to breakdown every accessory in-depth.
My favorite headphones in the whole wide world are also the favorites of the many DJ's who were polled for the DJ Magazine's Tech Award for Headphone Of The Year. The 2013 DJ Magazine HOTY is none other than the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Professional DJ Headphones. These headphones have phenomenal build quality, a folding hinge design, great sound quality, and customizable/removable shields for the earcups.
The Vestax VCI-400DJ (the special edition VCI-400 that comes bundled with the full version of Serato DJ software) Digital DJ controller is now released and available for purchase at your local retailer. The VCI-400 is an extremely versatile DJ controller that can work in perfect harmony with Traktor, Serato, Virtual DJ, Mixvibes, and almost every other popular DJ software on the market. I liked it so much that I kept the VCI-400 as my controller of choice.

The newest V-MODA over the ear headphones are being announced/released this week and we've already got our hands on a set (or two) for a complete and full out HD-Video review which will be completed shortly. The newest headphones in the V-MODA lineup are the Crossfade M-100 Pro DJ Headphones that share some similarities with the popular Crossfade LP2's but also add some cool new features that DJ's are sure to love. The most obvious upgrade that DJ's will enjoy is the new folding metal hinges found on the Crossfade M-100's that will allow DJ's to fold and collapse them into a smaller form factor for transport and storage. There's a few more updates that we'll go over in the full review to be released shortly. Check out the unboxing video inside to see a quick-look at a fresh set of Crossfade M-100 headphones.
The V-Moda Headphones are some of my personal favorites with their metal construction, comfortable feel, and all around great performance. I still have my own personal pair of Crossfade LP2's and V-80 (M-80 special True-Blood Edition) and there is no way I will ever give them up. I use them for gigs, traveling, and everyday listening. V-Moda has now announced that they are bringing the M-80 on-the-ear headphones out to the market in all white. Check out the press release and our review video inside for lots more information and more on how to get your own set.
Every DJ or performer knows how valuable our hearing is to us. So it should always be protected when being exposed to high decibel levels for extended periods of time. Last year, V-Moda teamed up with Ear Armor to bring some very high quality Ear Plugs to the market called V-Moda Faders. This year, the V-Moda Faders VIP version is released but this time with some very welcomed upgrades and features. The Faders VIP have a detachable cable, different sized silicon fittings, and a cool carry case. Check the press release and pricing information inside to get your set today.
In collaboration with Ear Armor, V-Moda has released some new earplugs called Faders that will protect DJ's hearing when in a very loud performance environment. These aren't your average earplugs. Theya re made from top-grade metals and medical grade silicone fittings to reduce the noise by 12 dB across the sound spectrum which still allows the user to enjoy the music and speech in a loud environment. They are going for only $15 right now, so get them while you can. That's a small price to pay for protecting your ears. Full press release and links inside.
Earlier in the year, we brought you the V-Moda V-80 Trueblood (on-the-ear) DJ headphones full video review and now we are ready to test out their new Limited Edition Crossfade LP2 Matte Black Metal (over-the-ear) DJ Headphones in a full HD-Video review as well. We should have the review completed within the next week but check out this unboxing and first impressions video in the meantime to see what comes in the packaging with the purchase. These All-metal headphones have great durability and excellent styling to boot. If the V-Moda LE LP2's perform anything like it's smaller V-80 sibling, then these should be a serious contender in the $200 DJ headphone market. Video after the jump.
